A Vibrant and Diverse Crowd, Communists, and Assorted Student Radicals RIOT In Order to Thwart Trump Speech in Chicago


EDIT: Now With Chicago Police scanner overlaid with Twitter “traffic”





CHICAGO (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump canceled one of his signature rallies on Friday, calling off the event in Chicago due to safety concerns after protesters packed into the arena where it was to take place.

The announcement that the billionaire businessman would postpone the rally until another day led a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers. Meanwhile, supporters of the candidate started chanting “We want Trump! We want Trump!”

There were isolated physical confrontations between some members of the crowd after the event was canceled.

Mexico? No silly, it's Chicago!

Mexico? No silly, it’s Chicago!

There was no sign of Trump inside the arena on the college campus, where dozens of UIC faculty and staff had petitioned university administrators to cancel the rally. They cited concerns it would create a “hostile and physically dangerous environment” for students.

Before the announcement the event wouldn’t take place, a handful of intense verbal clashes took place between Trump supporters and protesters as the crowd waited for his arrival. For the first time during his White House bid, the crowd appeared to be an equal mix of those eager to cheer on the real estate mogul and those overtly opposed to his candidacy.

When one African-American protester was escorted out before the event started, the crowd erupted into chants of “Let them stay!”

Veronica Kowalkowsky, an 18-year-old Trump supporter, said before the event started that she had no ill will toward the protesters — but didn’t think they felt the same way.

“I feel a lot of hate,” she said. “I haven’t said anything bad to anyone.”

Hours before the event was scheduled to start, hundreds of people lined up outside the arena at the University of Illinois at Chicago — a civil and immigrant rights organizing hub with large minority student populations. Trump backers were separated from an equally large crowd of anti-Trump protesters by a heavy police presence and barricades.

Some Trump supporters walking into the area chanted, “USA! USA!” and “Illegal is illegal.” One demonstrator shouted back, “Racist!”


This will get the Trump vote out in force.

    Yes, that headline is MUCH better.

    • Damn I would not have posted had I known you were working on one.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        No, I was talking about the original headline in the thread; it was made HRC ‘friendly’.
        The more posts the merrier! 🙂

        • Thanks you, I combined my post with yours.

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Well done!

  • BillyHW

    Trump just went up 10% in the polls because of this.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Especially with women!

      • BillyHW

        Is it just me or does it seem to you like all Megyn Kelly wants to do is pounce on him?

        • barryjr

          Megyn Kelly is a worthless whore who wants to suck off little Marco.

        • luna

          There is bad blood between them.

        • Clausewitz

          Kelly hates the fact that as a reporter she’s suppose to “report” the story, not “Be” the story.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Her loins are frothing like an Osterizer stuck on frappe!

    • He went up in my estimate too!

  • David Murrell

    I am angry at thus, but not suprised. The Trump rally was to be had at a universIty, at a corrupt hell hole called Chicago. Obsma’s Chicago.

  • canminuteman

    I have long though that when Obama was elected the second time that we had seen the last peaceful change of government that we were going to see in the US. It looks like I might be right. If they are prepared to do this at a campaign event, what would they be prepared to do at an iinauguration?

    • Exile1981

      or at voting stations?

    • Yes, this clearly puts democracy at risk.

  • Gary

    The lazy parasite are worried that all the free stuff will be cut off and they’ll have to get a job once Obama is gone.
    Obama wants to bring in more of these rabid savage illegals that he says are hard worker people that pay taxes and want to live in peace .

  • barryjr

    The Nazis are winning and this will only encourage them. Why aren’t the pigs doing their job and protecting legal speech in the face of oppression by a bunch of ignorant savages?

    • luna

      There wasn’t enough security present.

      • Exile1981

        Given that trumps campaign people looked on twitter and realized how many thousands of protestors wete being bussed in and cancelled for his security… you’d think the police would have seen it coming.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          I’ve seen cops at hockey games.
          Are they on duty or are they paid?

          • Exile1981

            Paid. At this point all the canidates have secret service details and all the publuc venues have police protection. A shortage of cops says to me they were not taking their job serious.

        • David Murrell

          The Chicago police are corrupt.

    • 3MileLimit

      They also can’t stand the sight of a White man daring to open his mouth and not bow down to the PC god, kissing dark behinds or offering free goodies. You don’t have to be pro-Trump to realize this.

      • 3MileLimit

        Oops! This comment was meant for Gary. Sorry barryjr.

  • Jay Currie

    I think the term “useful idiots” was coined to describe the anti-Trump dimwit we see here. A nicely addled combination of Occupy hobos, dumber black people and a few Mexicans and Muslims tossed in for added zaniness.

    And it’s fun to see them idioting in the name of Sanders. Icing on the cake.

  • Clink9

    The scumbag Rubio was on the news blaming Trump for this.

    • And so was Cruz.

      • kkruger71

        Did he? That sucks. Was that an official statement or on a specific station? Curious to see that.
        Have not watched a lot, but in the 20 or so minutes of CNN watching I did, I would say they had about 1/2 dozen “analysts and commentators” blame Trump.

        • lolwut?

          Sound takes a few seconds to kick in.
          Subscribe to this channel is you want lots of Trump footage.

          • kkruger71

            Truly disappointing.

          • lolwut?

            It is kinda true though, Trump has said a few things that give
            people at rallies the ok to knock them around a bit.

            Personally I think it’s great he’s doing it, white people
            are finding the courage to fight back from black thugs
            and their enablers.

            I’m hoping if Trump wins the election, Police will finally have the courage to speak out as well, not just a handful of sheriffs who have done so.

          • kkruger71

            Agreed, but two seconds of blaming the protesters, followed by almost 3 minutes of how it’s all Trumps fault is cheap, petty, and in my mind takes away from any support I was willing to give Cruz. Stinks of political opportunism, rather than any real conviction.

          • V10_Rob

            I expected better, Ted.

            They’d be gunning for you with the same rabidness if you were the frontrunner.

            Seems to be a chronic problem on the right, unable to tell their possible allies from their sworn enemies

          • El Martyachi

            That’s a feature not a bug.

          • BillyHW

            Wrong answer Ted.

          • Wow.

  • 3MileLimit

    Oh, what a target-rich environment.

  • kkruger71

    Actually this clip of Trump responding to this is one of the better things I’ve heard from him. I’m starting to come around a bit on this guy. I still don’t like him, trust him, and I think a lot of his ideas would crash and burn, but just as a statement for free speech and an unwillingness to bow down to mob rule I’d actually like to see him win now, especially since Cruz went full opportunistic weasel in his statement about tonights incident.


  • QiPo

    Bill Ayers, or as Obama calls him, god.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The upside is that the INTRA leftie violence at the Philly DNC will make this look tame. BLM vs communists vs ISIS vs…….

  • Dana Garcia

    Schools push self-esteem and this is what they get:


    • Notice the girl in a hijab holding the poster. Muslims are all about hate, yet here one pretends to be against hate.

  • Dana Garcia
  • Leftists are fascists – i.e. people who cannot tolerate different political opinions, who think only they hold the whole truth, who tend to use street violence and state force to impose their views. This kind of thing makes me think that Trump needs to get elected, to make sure the leftists are suppressed and prevented from imposing their totalitarian yearnings on everyone else.
